Next was the annual Cowlitz Gamers for Kids retro gaming show in Longview, WA. I go to this one every year, and it's a great time AND it's for a great cause -- helping disadvantaged kids in Cowlitz County, WA.
The "Free Play" area is a total blast. Try out the systems you don't have.
Genesis/Sega CD/32X Monster Combo
Oooooooooh! Jaguar. I played it for a long while. Gautlet 2. A good game, but why does your guy fire so slowly?
TurboGrafx! It had a really sweet SD-Cart with tons of ROMS. Unfortunately, I think the controller was defective. Games would load, but I couldn't figure out how to start a game
INTV and a VIC-20 -- they covered all the bases.
C64 and 3DO
Overview of the vendors:
Forum member Paul and his EightBitFix booth. Great stuff as always:
And the RickR haul. Please note, I started walking around thinking there's nothing here I need or want, a little depressed from recent events I suppose. But sure enough, I found MORE than enough stuff to buy, spent more than I wanted, but really had a great time and got lost in the moment to forget my troubles for a short while. This hobby can be the best.
